Nancy Drew 2012 Convention Clues #12

Rockin' R Ranch

Wednesday night during the Nancy Drew convention, we'll find ourselves enjoying a chuckwagon dinner and western stage show and old-time gunfight at Rockin' R Ranch in Mesa, AZ featuring the Rockin' R Wranglers. I'm really looking forward to this evening as I know everyone is going to have a great time. 

My family used to spend summers in Ruidoso, NM every year when I was growing up. My cousins would fly in and we'd all go with my grandparents and my parents as well as other family to Ruidoso and spend a couple of weeks in a cabin and enjoy all the fun things to do. We'd go horseback riding and visit White Sands and so many more fun things including going to the Flying J Ranch which was very similar to the Rockin' R Ranch where they had an old Western town set up with gunfight, gold panning, shops, and a dinner and western stage show and the biscuits were fabulous. We'd buy their biscuit mix every summer. We haven't been in several years now, so I am really looking forward to visiting the Rockin' R Ranch which I found out they both have some affiliation and are friends with each other and help each other out between the two establishments. Exciting!

If you want to catch a preview of the stage show and some other pictures and interesting history about the ranch, please visit their website.
